calmbirth® workshops, Brunswick

The calmbirth® philosophy is based on the belief that pregnancy, labour and birth are normal life events and that birth is a natural process.  The calmbirth® workshops draw on contemporary birth physiology and neuroscience giving couples a greater understanding of the birthing process whilst aiming to understand and reduce fear and anxiety.  With greater knowledge and understanding, women and their partners are able to feel confident to make informed decisions around their birth choices.

The workshops combine an understanding of the birthing process, the hormones of labour and birth and practical skills for managing pain, sensations and challenges of labour, that include breathing, relaxation and visualisation techniques, positioning and massage.  Life after birth and the transition to parenthood and the role of the partner/support is also emphasised.

The comprehensive course is complementary to all models of care – private or public, birth centre or home-birth and are not an alternative to the birthing choices you have already made. You will gain practical knowledge and skills whether this is your first or third baby, or hoping to achieve a vaginal birth after a previous caesarean (VBAC).  Refresher classes are also available for subsequent pregnancies if you’ve completed the original course.

Classes are held at My Midwives, Brunswick

Cost per couple – $550 (for the two days) which includes the booklet, downloads and refreshments.  ($150 non-refundable deposit to secure enrolment)

Weekend workshops run from 9am to approx 4.30pm over two days.
